Find Me On:
Couldn’t agree more.
You heard it here first.
THANK YOU #ROBOTGOD
When I first heard gave this album a spin, I was in my kitchen, making breakfast. ‘Unbelievers’ came on, I jumped around a bit (a lot) and nearly burned my eggs.
It might not sound like much, but I swear to God it was the most cathartic moment of my life to date.
Rubber Soul is my favourite Beatles record. This is (as of now) my favourite VW record.
Where I’m from in South Africa, ‘moment’s silence’ means crazy party.
Let’s have a moment’s silence for the album versions of Unbelievers and Hannah Hunt.
Unbelievers is the best of the rest, no question.
Play By Play — Counting off Anxiety gives it a run for its money.
Youtube likes to make people think they were the 313th person to watch a video, for some reason.
The singer from AlunaGeorge anyone?
On an another note – I’ve been reading Stereogum comments for years, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually commented. Was mildly disappointed to learn I couldn’t anonymously upvote myself.
Okay, obviously ‘new’ artist basically just means ‘has never been on Best New Artist list for the Gummies before’. (And even then…)
To clear up:
Death Grips realeased Exmilitary last year.
Grimes put out Geidi Primes last year (and the Dark Primes EP).
Kendrick Lamar had Section.80 out last year.
And Father John Misty isn’t the only suspect ‘new’ artist. He did make albums as J. Tillman before and was the Fleet Foxes drummer, but DIIV member Zachary Cole Smith is the guitarist for Beach Fossils, and Divine Fits have members who were part of Handsome Furs and Spoon.
Basically, enough bitching. The criteria wasn’t watertight, but this is what we voted for, right? Right.
